Dilip Vishwanat

Experts weigh in on who will win this week's showdown between the Rams and the Bucs.

The expert opinions on this weekend's game between the Rams and the Bucs have begun to trickle in, and the opinions so far have been split nearly completely down the middle. ESPN's Chris Carter, Adam Schefter and Mark Schlereth have picked the Rams, while Mike Golic, Seth Wickersham and Eric Allen have picked the Bucs.

At Yahoo, Les Carpenter and Mike Silver have chosen the Rams, while Jason Cole has picked the Bucs. The fans at Yahoo have chosen the Bucs as well. At CBS, Pete Prisco, Mike Freeman, Dave Richard and Ryan Wilson have picked Tampa Bay. Clark Judge, Jason La Canfora, Will Brinson and Josh Katzowitz, meanwhile, have chosen St. Louis.

The Bucs and the Rams enter Sunday's game 6-8 and 6-7-1, respectively. Tampa Bay has been eliminated from postseason contention, while St. Louis still has the slimmest of mathematical chances of making the playoffs. Tampa Bay opened the week as a 3-point favorite.
